They took out the wall yesterday. Zowie! Today they will bring in the big equipment (back hoe? ) to dig out the rest of the wall and pour the footer.

Here is the before

and after pic, but it is not as impressive as seeing that gaping hole from the other side

I had been a slacker about digging up the 2 plants I really wanted to save. It is just an out right miracle that I was still able to retrieve them.

See how close that brick pile was to my black rapberry cane!!

And this is where the Peruvian daffodils that I move here from Birmingham reside. I was able to dig those up (before the back hoe would have today)

I know Mike was worried they would dismantle the filter contracption he built for the icemaker. They manged to leave that intact too.
